"This teaching resource facilitates student engagement with historical context, artefacts and individuals featured in the Anne Frank exhibit... An investigation of primary source material fosters historical and critical thinking skills in students. This guide complements class visits to the 90-minute interactive exhibit tour and workshop, and is divided into two sections. Support materials are provided at the end of each lesson. The pre-visit lessons introduce students to National Socialism, and open up discussion about Jewish life in prewar Germany and Austria. Post-visit exercises address thematic issues raised during the school program, and offer students the opportunity for further reflection on the exhibit and other instances of historical injustice."
